The potential and ability of EPS foam formwork on a finished concrete product is nearly unmatched.

The time- and labor-efficient process that creates unique designs and shapes in concrete is a game-changer when it comes to bringing ideas to life, letting them stand out, and ultimately withstand the test of time.

At Scott System, our team is able to manufacture complex foam shapes and design details that will facilitate the creation of structural and decorative concrete.

Whether it’s unique architectural designs, difficult double-curved surfaces, or any design that cannot utilize traditional forming methods, foam formwork design is a lightweight and cost-effective solution when compared to steel and wood alternatives.

Working with an experienced formwork expert who collaborates with architects, engineers, and contractors will develop the best results.

Best Uses for Foam Formwork

Using expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam formwork in an architectural concrete project can save companies time and money.

Unlike wood or steel, there is limited setup and removal time foam formwork, as well as fewer truckloads of supplies and less labor associated with the process.

Foam formwork will also not warp or distort while on the worksite unlike its counterparts. Choose from a variety of final surface coatings to get a smooth or textured finish that could also be reused throughout the project.
